I have licenced 20 or so images and added to each a colorful frame and text box with a Title, blurb/"logo" and writing prompt sentence for children to use in their creative writing. I've put these modified images in a children's book because I was asked to by a homeschooling parent. At the start of the book I say the images can not be copied and at the end of the book I have a thumbnail of each image with the author and Adobe Stock reference number and request that people purchase their own licence if they wish to use the image in their own projects.
Do you think this use is covered by the standard licence?
Thanks for your help
Hmm... I'm not 100% (best to wait for an Adobe Staff member to help you with this question) - especially as you are working in Education.
As I understand it:
Whether or not students of the school can use the same image is question I can't answer.
My assumption is that a teacher could use it in their learning materials as well as part of the school license, as could the school put it on their web-site.
Hopefully one of the Stock licensing experts will add to this and provide you with a more conclusive answer.
Thanks for that Cari, that was helpful but not quite the answer I was looking for.
My question is whether I can sell my modified images in a book that the purchaser can use for their own personal study purposes. I have seen from someone else's question that you can use images in a book and just wanted to check that this would also apply in this case. The children will use the sentence or two I have written to start their own stories, the images are simply there to get their imagination going to write their own stories. They will as such not be using the images in their writing.
The images complement the sentences, but are not the main thing. The sentences are what the children will be using to write from (with reference to the picture). The book is a collection of Story Starters, the Story Starters being the actual sentences.
I hope this makes sense.
It would be awesome if one of the licensing experts could give their opinion.
That was good, and I thought I had the answer but when I got to the bottom it was still confusing! Looked like "Stfarrell" was okay to do his picture book according to someone at Adobe but then someone else disagreed. Is there someone I can send my images too who will be able to give an opinion specific to my case? Maybe the "Beverley' he was referred to?
Can you give some examples/screenshots on how you plan to use them?
I've attached a copy of an inside page and the copyright pages.
Thanks for taking a look.
All the best
As I did not receive any file, could you please try attaching the file here so that I can have a look and solve your query accordingly.
I am trying again.
Can you please email to confirm you've received these or not
I have sent you a private message please check and reply.
Sorry for a delay in response, I have gone through your screenshots and would like to let you know that you would be requiring an extended license because the primary value of the book is the images in this case.

Thanks for taking the time to look at the images. It is disappointing ,
I have to admit, but I understand. Better to find out now.
Can you please give me your opinion on whether I can do any of the
following under the standard license:
1. Can I publish an e-book with the images and copyright etc,a s per the
2. Is it okay for me to publish the images on my Facebook page? Each
image has the copyright information displayed on the actual image and is
published at low resolution.
3. Can I display the images on my website? Am I able to make the images
on my website downloadable if I have them at a low resolution and with a
4. I'd like to offer a free monthly PDF of 4-5 images along with a free
short story I've written for children and some advertising for my other
books. Would this be allowable under the standard license?
Thanks for your time. I appreciate it.
All the best
